Some days are just better than others. Today is one such day and I am very thankful.
I appreciate my daughter Elizabeth and grandkitten Jack for their continuous support and generous donation!
Also, I am grateful to Jeff Hull for joining this journey in honor of his mother, Nancy Nelson, who suffered from Alzheimer’s until her passing in 2005. Jeff and Nancy have been added to my tribute book and will have ribbons made in their names to run with me in my next race.
Today’s training run began at 4:45 a.m. and covered over six miles. It is exciting to have already logged over 50 miles so far this year! The picture below is of a statue of Texas Governor James W. Throckmorton whose presence commands the square. I imagine he is pointing the way to the finish line when I run past him in the morning. Maybe I shouldn’t admit that publicly. When our daughters turned thirteen they were treated to a birthday road rally party and the good old governor was often a clue or stopping point. One of my favorite memories is a video of my daughter Lauren on her road rally trying to say Throckmorton. Thork-en-mor-ton!! You had to be there but it was classic.
Make it a memorable day and have a great weekend!
